Recently, I had the pleasure of attending the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions annual conference. The 4 day conference included an array of educational tracks, including coronary, structural heart, quality, congenital heart, and peripheral vascular; scientific symposia; and events geared towards interventional cardiologists and cath lab staff. Attendees had several opportunities to learn more about robotic-assisted PCI while at SCAI 2014 including live demonstrations of the CorPath System at the Corindus booth, a poster presentation on complex robotic-assisted PCI, and a breakfast symposium on Thursday morning.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting the Boston office of Aldebaran Robotics whose unique humanoid robot NAO is being used in research facilities across the globe. Well…I’ll let him tell you about it himself.
Another fantastic TCT has come and gone, but this time attendees got great exposure to CorPath and the benefits it can bring to their patients. Though we’ve travelled back to the blustery New England fall weather, the thrill of the conference is still in the air. Nearly 12,000 people attended from across the globe, including a large contingent from Corindus. The Corindus team was not only in the booth, several of our team members were able to catch sessions throughout the week including a presentation given by Dr. Giora Weisz on the current status and future directions of robotic-assisted PCI and a presentation on Geographic Miss that highlighted CorPath given by Dr. Bezerra from University Hospital in Cleveland. While sessions began on Sunday, the exhibit hall did not open until Tuesday evening.
